Does anyone know where to find glass baby bottles? I am also interested in storing expressed milk in glass bottles since that seems to be the safest material.

From what I understand, storing breast milk in glass bottles is NOT the safest material. I can't remember the exact reason why, somthing about how the milk bonds to the glass surface. Check with a lactation consultant or check www.breastfeeding.com.

Good luck!

The previous poster was correct. The milk bonds to glass bottles and all of the nutrients stick to the bottle. The plastic are your best bet. If you use Avent bottles, they have an attachment that hooks onto the Medela pump so you don't need to use Medela's bottles. I wish I had known this before I stopped pumping. We were washing about 20 bottles each day!
